Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 2): The reason they did poorly in the first place was concentrating on non-traditional markets. They are emphasizing that this time around, flying to MEX will allow DFW to perform well.
Indeed, now that the scheds allow varios connections in MEX to any other flights, and viceversa.
Life is what happens when you have other plans.....

I had heard that it actually was not about the flights to MLM/ZCL, which were doing fairly well, buth rather the scheduling and aircraft utilization. The schedules had the planes arriving from MLM/ZCL very early in the morning, doing charter rotations to other cities like CUN during the day, and then returning back to MLM/ZCL late at night. This schedule apparently was not the best for connections, and also once the Hurricanes hit, and CUN tourism fell a bit, it made the economics of the daytime charter flight, and thus the whole aircraft rotation, a loss-maker.
Hopefully MX will eventually come back to D/FW with flights to MLM and ZCL, along with other regional Mexican cities, again.
